Attacking the problem in fhandler_disk_file::open before fhandler_base::open
is called is a better place and more efficient.
Checked grep -R execution with the snapshot (cygwin-20020513.dll) and it
works on W98SE.

I hope I remember it next time around ...
Maybe you could mention this on http://cygwin.com/contrib.html.
Now it mentions only using 'cvs diff -up' to generate the patch.

Anyway I hope this has brought cygwin.dll 1.3.11 a bit closer.
